As I'm sure most people on my social media already know, my sister Sophie Vincent is getting married today. I felt it only right to dedicate a blog post to you, Sophie.
Dear Sophie... as you're getting married on the 10th March, I will explain 10 reasons why I love you!
You are so SELFLESS. I have never met anyone who puts every single person before themselves in the way you do. You could be dealing with your own problems but prioritise my needs above your own.
You are so STRONG. You suffer with Crohn's Disease and Colitis and no-one would even know because you hold yourself with such strength. I know first hand how difficult these horrible conditions are but you don't moan, you get up every day and fight it!
You are INSPIRATIONAL. How old are you, like 25? You have your own bloody 3 bedroom beautiful house and you're just about to get married! WOW. You've achieved so much in a limited amount of time and I can only aspire to have what you have.
You are FUNNY. I have never met anyone who can make me laugh the way you do, without even trying. You come out with the most craziest things that are so shocking, the only thing you can do is laugh.
You are so LOVED. You have built yourself such a strong group of friends over the years and they all absolutely adore you. I think this shows just how much of a beautiful person you are.
You are CARE-FREE. Soph, you are confident in a way that I am trying to be every day. You live your life day-to-day not caring what anyone thinks of you. I think this is so admirable in a world where so many people are wrapped up in others opinions.
You are SMART. Ok... hear me out. You're maybe not smart in the conventional way but in so many other ways. Anything you put your mind to, you excel in. You try so hard at everything you do eg. exercising, working, horse-riding.
You are bloody FIT. I can quite safely say, I've never met anyone who enjoys waking up at 6am to go to boot-camp, then go on an hour long horse-ride, then a 10km run and then finish the day off with a spin class. This is another example of you being strong. You're my inspiration and one day I pray I will enjoy fitness in the way you do... (its unlikely)!
You are so LOVING. I've seen you and Gareth fall in love and build this beautiful life together over the past 6 years and it's been amazing. You love Gareth so much and he is such a lucky man to be taking this step in life with you.
You are my BEST FRIEND! You are the one person I can tell everything to. I can trust you with truly anything and I am so lucky to have you by my side throughout the rest of my life.
Your day is finally here, let's get our pretty make-up on, cry it off, dance and get drunk. I'm the luckiest person in the world to call you my big sister. You're amazing soph and I love you so much. Love Miss Millie xx
